Interesting to see the return of the self contained version for Linux. I should ask on the BOINC forums whether there is a way to put the 32bit libraries into that version. I also see that for Linux it says, "Development version, may be unstable." So it goes against the convention of development releases having an odd number as in 7.17.0 which I am running and even numbers 7.16.x being allegedly stable release versions.

Edit:7.16.0 has been around in some of the repositories for a couple of weeks or so now. What this one does mean is that when newbies ask questions about file locations etc. we will need to check how they installed their brand new shiny BOINC.
